    Brad Arthur is easily the most overrated coach in the league. Or is he even rated at all?

    There’s not a single brain with more than three working cells in the parramatta organisation.

    Just a friendly reminder to Canberra fans that this is the same man who thought Tevita Pangai Junior wasn't worth the hassle.

    Wasn't TPJ one of the homesick brigade?

    Stick is a fine coach. There's an old saying though, you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

    Stick knew TPJ would never go to the next level without those harsh words. A loss for the club but a gain for Rugby League.
    Another selfless act from the best man manager in the game.

    Been thinking about my opinion on Sticky for a while...

    Come to conclude that his desire is there but the execution is not always... That is much better than McDrunk who acts that all is fine, runs the same dumb plays which teams have figure out and just acts nonchalantly.

    Dean Pay is obviously the second most overrated coach ever, just behind Brad Arthur, who wins hands down.

    Sticky is actually quite good, especially given he was missing his star English hooker Josh Hodgson for most of the season. However he is too restrained in public, especially at press conferences, about expressing his views on referees decisions.

    Pansy Guy Jr. was a club whore who played for 3 clubs before he even debuted in FG. The way Brisbane signed him in an airport lounge was kinda seedy too btw.

    His disloyalty will come to pass with Brisbane as well when Bennett gets the arse. He'll be at Newcastle once Wayne's gone.

    Ricky is only one of a few NRL coaches to retain his job, and Halloween pt. 2 is top of the box office.

    I might stay a while in this bizarro parallel universe
